IBM R40 Screen problem

I have a work laptop that I am using and I originally thought the screen took a dump. However, I discovered 2 things, 1st the computer works just fine when plugged into an external monitor no graphics issues what so ever, and 2nd it appears the screen is working it is just very very dim. I can just make out the Windows XP logo on the desktop background. I tried Fn+F7 no luck also tried the Fn+the dim up and down and no luck. I tried changing the settings on the video settings and still nothing. Is my LCD fried or something else I can do. Thanks for any help.

Re: IBM R40 Screen problem
When was this notebook purchased, and how long have you been using it?

Thinkpads are notoriously known for their dim screens.
